After the release of the iPhone 14, new M2 Macs and iPads could come out in October.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who keeps an eye on Apple, says that at an event in October, Apple could show off a new iPad Pro based on the M2 chip as well as M2 versions of the Mac mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro.

Gurman thinks that Apple will release at least two new devices in October. These could include a redesigned iPad Pro with an M2 processor and an updated entry-level iPad with an A14 chip and a USB-C port. A M2 Mac mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro could also come out.

9to5Mac says Apple will make an iPad Pro with an LCD screen that measures 11 inches and an iPad Pro that measures 12.9 inches and uses miniLED technology. Both will also have MagSafe connections for power.

Apple will release the 10th generation of its entry-level iPad in 2022. Instead of the Lightning connector, it will have a USB-C port, which should mean that all of Apple’s iPads will support USB-C. After European lawmakers said that all devices must support USB-C by 2024, this change is happening.

After getting through the supply chain problems caused by China’s “Covid zero” policy, Apple has a lot on its plate as it heads into the holiday shopping season of 2022. Now, the country is facing a severe drought that is affecting the Yangtze River’s hydroelectric generation. This has caused power outages in some areas, which led Tesla to call for help.

On September 7, the tech giant will announce its new iPhone 14 lineup and new Apple Watch models. This is the same week that all employees at the company’s Cupertino headquarters will have to work three days a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays are required, but teams can choose a third day.

Apple usually releases new iPhones in September or October, but Gurman points out in this week’s Power On newsletter that Apple has slightly moved up the launch of the iPhone 14, making it the earliest iPhone launch since 2016. This year’s earlier launch date gives Apple an extra week of iPhone sales in the quarter, covering the important holiday season sales.

It’s likely that this year’s entry-level iPad will have a Retina display like the iPad Air and a larger screen between 10.5 and 10.9 inches.

When it comes to Apple’s launch events, it looks like the company is trying to make them fit its hybrid work style. Gurman thinks that Apple will have a live event that will also be broadcast online.

“We are still a long way from getting back to how things were before the pandemic. But an on-site media event and office work could make it feel like the most normal fall for Apple since the iPhone 11 came out in 2019 “said Gurman.
